In this study tissue and plasma concentrations were established in eight patients with gynecologic malignancies, and correlations between tissue and plasma CEA concentrations were compared. Tissue concentration was determined by the immunoperoxidase staining method. Plasma CEA concentration was lower than tissue concentration. The causes of this difference were examined in this study.
